Earl Camp Award

The Earl Camp Award is the most prestigious honor bestowed upon graduating seniors by the faculty and staff of Biological Sciences at TTU.  The award is named in honor of the late Earl Camp, former professor and chairman of Biology, who endowed the award.  The award carries a monetary prize whose amount varies from year to year, but is usually not less than $1000.

Awardees are biological science majors who typically have cumulative GPAs of 3.7, or above.  They have also participated in undergraduate biological research and have presented or published this research, or are preparing to do so.

Nominations are made in one of three ways: (1) a letter of recommendation from a biology faculty member, (2) a letter of recommendation from a research mentor, or (3) self-nomination by the student.  Nomination materials are due no later than April 20 (for seniors graduating the coming May, August, or December).  At the least, nomination materials must include a letter of recommendation, written by a biology faculty member or research mentor.  Up to three letters may be submitted.  Also included might be evidence of presentation/publication, and a resume.

Nomination materials should be submitted to the Advisors' Suite (Biology basement, room 10), or e-mailed to <biology.advising@ttu.edu>
